Stopped for dinner after a long hard driving day. Our server was spectacular and his recommendations were spot on. He knew the menu and answered every question with no hesitation. The food came VERY quickly and was seasoned perfectly. Temperature was too hot to eat when it came. Nice change from some places with Luke-warm food. We will return next... More

Las Palmas is my 'go to' restaurant in Mason City. I eat here nearly every time I visit the area. My favorite menu item is the Fajita Quesadillas. I like the beef, my wife likes the chicken. The wait staff are very attentive, and the food is consistently great. I look forward to my next visit to Mason City so... More

As a person that doesn't enjoy spicy Mexican food I was hesitant when told we would have lunch at Las Pallas. Upon Arrival the service was very good quickly seated in a nice area to discuss our business. The waitress was very cooperative and led me to non spicy dishes. The choice she recommended was so good I returned for... More

The food here is good but I feel like as a solo diner they see you as more of a hassle. Take your food to go and you'll be happy.

The selection was unique and excellent. Everything had excellent flavor with just the right amount of kick that you'd expect from Mexican food! The staff was friendly and helpful and they are conveniently located. Will certainly go back!

My friend and I stopped here twice for lunch. Both times the wait times were very long. And no one ever comes to your table to see if you need anything. Once your food is delivered, you are on your own! Both times we had to get up and go find someone to ask about dessert. Also, the wait staff... More

We have been here before and it was okay. So giving it another chance. Well, the service was bad. We were ready to get up, put money on the table for the chips and salsa we ate and leave. Too many employees standing around doing nothing. The food was just okay.

Wife, younger grandson & I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Las Palmas the evening of September 3, 2016. The restaurant smelled good to us when we entered. We were impressed by the large number of Spanish-speaking patrons in the restaurant when we arrived. We had an excellent waitperson with a great sense of humor who was willing to answer all... More

We have been here a few times recently and have enjoyed the outdoor seating. Some of the meals are very good. The grilled Tilapia and shrimp meal is superb but the deep fried Tilapia and shrimp dish is mediocre at best.

Carry out took 10 minutes or less. Hard shell tacos were good along with the rice and beans. Enjoyed the salsa and guacamole too. Will return.
